1.5tsp for 400mL water (approximately — tea was made for me)

Had a meeting at a trendy coffee shop this morning. They also sell loose teas. The teas are properly stored in aritight canisters. Many coffee shops proudly display their loose tea in cavernous jars — pretty to look at, but damaging to the teas, as both air and light gnaw at them.

I don’t know where Hava Java got this sencha, but it was the best I’ve ever tasted. A vegetal note in the aroma, then full-on sweet green CREAMINESS. Not a drop of astringency. No brine. No lawn-clippings. The water was also not quite boiling, which helped. But seriously: creamy green tea! Like a matcha and soy milk latte. Heaven.

Can anyone recommend a sencha to me that sounds like the one I just described?
